.IE is passionate about enabling and empowering Ireland to leverage the Internet for the good of its society and economy.
As the national registry for .ie domain names, we provide a trusted pathway to the Internet for Irish people, communities and business. With our original research and insights we inform and enable policymakers and our partners to advance Ireland’s internet ecosystem, thereby helping everyone in Ireland to thrive online. With our annual .IE Digital Town programme, we celebrate a town’s online progress and promote its digital achievements.
